City Academy 


November 14, 2018

Salt Lake City—As part of the company’s community day of service, nine employees from the Wells Fargo Bank Commercial Real Estate Division spent much of the day at City Academy in early October. The group was led by Wells Fargo Vice President (and City Academy board member) Erik Bengtzen. This marks the third consecutive year that Wells Fargo has embarked on doing community service for City Academy.

According to City Academy Executive Director Sonia Woodbury, “The Wells Fargo team re-landscaped the west section of our grounds with rock donated by Utah Sand and Gravel (this company has donated to us in the past). The volunteers worked all day, first tearing out overgrown landscaping and then hauling wheelbarrows full of rock up from the street to fill in a zero-scape with large rocks. These rocks are large enough that are students can sit on them during lunch. The area looks really great, and is complemented with the parking strip area Wells Fargo worked on last year, with the same zero-scape scheme as Alsco’s property to the west of our school.”

Woodbury added, “It is so amazing to have these banking professionals take a whole day to do this for our school—now for three years running. As one of our teachers said, ‘They are helping us look great on the outside to match the great education students are getting on the inside of the building.’”
